Cause of Problem:
Building was having water leaking due to broken drain.
A leaking roof drain pipe can cause major water damage very quickly. If the drain is left leaking for even a short period of time there is a possibility for mold to grow! By having a roof drain repair or even inspection to ensure there are no leaks may save you thousands in the long run. The design for a roof drain is to prevent water build up on flat roofs. If there was is not a roof drain, you risk the chance of rain water “pooling” up on the roof. The extra water may cause issues with your roof such as it collapsing! Most roof drains will look like a large dome with metal grate to allow rain water to flow efficiently yet block debris such as leaves from entering drainage system.
In this particular situation the the pipe was leaking. Which was causing water to enter the building during a rain shower. The customer contacted Rhino Rooter for the roof drain repair. When the plumber arrived they found the 8″ PVC by Cast Iron pipe connection was not sealed properly. The plumbers were able to remove a section of the pipe and repair the area quickly and permanently.
